WSPN Annual Philanthropy Awards
2018 Honorees


Philanthropic Leadership Award


Allen and Patti Gustafson, Gustafson Family Foundation (Woodridge)

"We are honored and humbled to be in the company of past and present WSPN awardees. Our philanthropy is an expression of our gratitude for all we have received as well as our desire to do what we can to make the world a better place."


Humanitarian of the Year


Mishael Sherley, Dearborn National Life Insurance Company (Chicago)

"If you aren’t GIVING, you aren’t LIVING! Live your best life by giving to enhance the life of others.”


Nonprofit Executive of the Year


Peggy McGuire, Director of Child and Family Development for Project HELP (Naperville)

"My lifelong passion is to give children the best opportunity to thrive by supporting families in creating nurturing environments and a strong foundation. I am honored and humbled to be acknowledged for the service and impact our dedicated team has been able to provide to our community."


Corporate Philanthropic Award


Showalter Roofing Service, Inc. (Naperville)

"We are honored to receive the Corporate Philanthropic Award. Improving the quality of life for people in our community is our privilege."


Foundation Philanthropic Award


Dan Gibbons, Turkey Trot Foundation (Elmhurst)

"On any given day in DuPage County 60,000 people are at-risk of going to bed hungry. Of those, 20,000 are children. And these numbers are probably low. Our most vulnerable populations, our children and seniors, should be provided basic human needs. It's not a privilege, it's a right. It all starts with a meal. We believe in 'Dignity...served daily'."


Service Club Philanthropic Award


Naperville Jaycees (Naperville)

"As Naperville Jaycees, we believe that service to humanity is the best work of life.  We are humbled to have our dedicated group of friends and developing leaders recognized with this honor; it inspires us to do even more."  


Grantmaker of the Year


Peri Todd, DuPage Medical Group Charitable Fund (Downers Grove)

"I am honored to have been chosen as WSPN’s Grantmaker of the Year. Grant making is not just a financial transaction between the funder and the grantee -- it is a collaboration built upon an understanding of community needs and a commitment to be a stakeholder in addressing those needs."


Nonprofit Volunteer of the Year


Barb Tartaglione (Naperville)

"This award is extremely meaningful, because it is actually recognition of the value of the agencies that I've been involved with, including The People's Resource Center, West Suburban Jobs Council, and Care for Cars, all of which share the mission to increase the quality of life for low income and disadvantaged residents in DuPage County. The ability to do this work with other committed people and see its impact on clients is what motivates me to volunteer."


Young Philanthropist Award


Joseph Lasare, DuPage Habitat for Humanity (Prospect Heights)
